Love is a strange, ethereal, yet powerful emotion, one that we often take for granted.
Koi to Uso was an anime that explored this concept in an extremely unique way, one that I had never seen before. For that, it quickly got me interested, as a story with so much potential, I couldn’t help but get excited! Exploring the meaning of what love is, the lies, the social drama, the emotions that would come about, how could I NOT be excited?
But of course, with such lofty expectations, the story must then be good enough to match–and suffice to say…
Well. It’s sometimes hard to live up to expectation, ya know?
Now we gotta wait for Season 16, huh?
Well, Season 15 of Red Vs Blue was certainly an interesting ride. Between Joe Nicolosi’s role as the director, the new Halo 5 game engine, and the one season story format, season 15 was…rather unique, to say the least. It did a lot, innovated in many ways, but was it good?
Don’t you wish, sometimes, that you didn’t have to worry about your daily chores?
Wouldn’t a maid be good to have sometimes? Someone who could just take care of everything you don’t want to deal with? Or, even better, wouldn’t it be great to have a Maid that’s also a DRAGON? Then they could use magic to clean things up, they could give you rides to work, it’d be GREAT!
Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid was…definitely an anime. It was a strange one, and I mean, with a concept like that, how could it not be? Airing earlier this year, from January 2017-April 2017, I figured I was a bit late on the ball, and decided to watch the series.
All things considered, I’m glad I did.
Season 2 of Attack on Titan had a lot to live up to.
The series erupted onto the anime scene in a huge way, becoming an instant classic in the world of shounen anime. This instant popularity only made it more notorious, when years began to pass without any confirmed sequel date. So when this season was announced, many people, myself included, were hyped as all hell.
And now that’s it out, we all have different opinions. Some people lauded it as amazing, while others provided criticism for its poor storytelling. But me?
Well, it was an interesting season, to say the least.
Every so often, you learn about an anime that sounds great in theory, but isn’t pulled off so well in practice.
I haven’t heard much about Chaos;Head, but it certainly sounded like an anime I could enjoy. A psychological, supernatural thriller? That’s up my alley! And, watching it, looking back on it, I can certainly say that it was an…interesting anime to watch.

I’ve wanted to review this one for a while now.
Clannad is one of those series that is near and dear to many people’s hearts. I talked about it recently, as my second favorite story of all time, and from what I know, it was an emotional trip for almost everyone that’s watched it. But that’s all from personal preference, experiencing a story that I perceived as great. Critically speaking, is there anything different about Clannad? How good is it, really?
Well, that’s what this review is for, right? Strip the feelings, and let’s get a good logical look at this series, and see how it holds up.
Okay, so I’m hopping on the anime bandwagon with this one, sorry, but it’s gotta be done.
Kimi No Na Wa has been making HUGE waves ever since its premiere in Japan, in July of 2016. From that beginning, it’s outdone the Miyazaki classic, Spirited Away, to become the most profitable anime movie of all time. On top of this, it boasts essentially universal critical acclaim, from basically anyone you ask.
Moving over to America on April 7th in theaters across the country, Your Name continued to receive buckets of positive reception, from critics of all kinds, and as of this moment, is still out in theaters. But really, how good can it be? An independent anime film, in actual Western theaters? It can’t be THAT good?
…I’ll be honest here, this review is just a chance for me to say how DAMN good Your Name is. There will be no spoilers in this review, for those who happen to not know about the movie themselves! That said, let’s get to it.
Anohana is one anime in a line of many emotional tearjerkers. Because, you know, we all need a good cry every so often right?
